MISHAWAKA — Mishawka police say two backpack meth labs found behind a Motel 6 in Mishawaka were likely put together inside one of the rooms.
Lt. Tim Williams said Metro Special Operations is investigating the labs, which were found Sunday just outside the Motel 6 at 2754 Lincoln Way East. No arrests have been made at this time.
"The first thing my husband said was 'Oh no, here we go,' so yeah, it was a little disturbing," said Betsy Karnes, who lives just down the road from the Motel 6.
This comes just a week and a half after another meth bust at a Stark County motel. Four meth labs were found scattered throughout rooms and a vehicle at the Holloway Motel in Hamlet. Four people were arrested, including the motel manager. That building was condemned by the Starke County Health Department.
